Mighty No. 9’s PAX Prime 2014 trailer is mega colorful

PAX Prime came to an end on Monday, but we’re still sorting through all the news to emerge from the expo and the latest Might No. 9 trailer is too good to pass up. Once again, Mega Man creator Keiji Inafune mesmerized a PAX crowd with new details of his beautiful platformer, including a look at several of the boss battles. It’s colorful, it’s polished, and it’s embedded above.

Mighty No. 9 will be available for the 3DS, PC, PS3, PS4, Vita, Wii U, Xbox 360, and Xbox One in Spring 2015.

Keiji Inafune and the development team at Comcept have gotten into the habit of unveiling a new trailer for Mighty No. 9 every month.

Mighty No. 9 animated adaptation in the works

I don’t how this will impact the planned live-action adaptation, but Comcept and Digital Frontier have announced they’ve begun work on an animated adaptation of Mighty No. 9.

The project is still in the early stages, but Digital Frontier wants to create an “action-packed comedy aimed at kids 6-11″ that they hope will appeal to adults as well. If the teaser video above is any indication, I think they’ve got a shot at doing just that. Produced for this weekend’s Anime Expo in Los Angeles, the video is a neat little taste of things to come. However, according to an FAQ posted on the official Mighty No. 9 site, no one has officially signed on to the animated adaptation as of yet. Digital Frontier is still looking for writers, a director, and voice actors. Because of this, we don’t know when Mighty No. 9: The Animated Series will make its television debut.

But hopefully the announcer sticks around, he’s pretty awesome.

Comcept shows off another gameplay trailer for Mighty No. 9

Keiji Inafune and his team at Comcept have released a new gameplay trailer for Mighty No. 9, their spiritual successor to Inafune’s world famous Mega Man series.

Today’s trailer is an update to Mighty No. 9’s May trailer in that it once again focuses on the industrial locale that Mighty No. 5 calls home and the icy domain of Mighty No. 2. Go Mighty go!

Thanks to its hugely successful Kickstarter campaign, Comcept will release Mighty No. 9 for the 3DS, PC (Windows, Mac, Linux), PS3, PS4, Vita, Wii U, Xbox 360, and Xbox One in Spring 2015.

Comcept closes out “Mighty May” with Mighty No. 9 gameplay trailer

Comcept has released a handful of trailers showcasing their progress on Mighty No. 9 since the completion of the Kickstarter campaign last Fall. But today’s new gameplay trailer, released to celebrate the end of “Mighty May,” is the most impressive yet. You might even say it is mega cool, man.

The trailer focuses on the icy locale that Mighty No. 2 calls home and the more industrial digs of Mighty No. 5. And unlike the previous “work-in-progress” trailers, this one features some beautiful backgrounds and gorgeous graphical effects, as well as a ton of enemies and environmental objects. Basically, it’s starting to look like a finished game.

According to Comcept, development on Mighty No. 9 will be completed over the course of the next 12 months and we should all be able to get our hands on it in Spring 2015. And I do mean all as Mighty No. 9 is in development for the 3DS, PC (Windows, Mac, Linux), PS3, PS4, Vita, Wii U, Xbox 360, and Xbox One.

Mighty No. 9’s GDC 2014 trailer is mega-tastic

I’ve got good news! Especially if you were 10 years old in 1990… Keiji Inafune and Comcept have unveiled another trailer for Mighty No. 9 during their Game Developers Conference presentation!

After Inafune left Capcom, the publisher left Mega Man, his best-known creation, to flounder amid a sea of cancellations and cameos. But the developer has distilled the essence of Mega Man into Mighty No. 9 and produced a game that is looking less “homage” and more “unauthorized sequel” every time we see it. And that’s a good thing. He even patterned Mighty No. 9’s boss robots on the Robot Masters from the original Mega Man. My inner 10-year-old gives this trailer seven thumbs up.

Inafune funded the side-scrolling shooter last year through a mega-successful Kickstarter campaign that ensured the game will be released for nearly every platform imaginable: 3DS, PC, PS3, PS4, Vita, Wii U, Xbox 360, and Xbox One.

New Mighty No. 9 gameplay video released and a live-action adaptation is in development

Keiji Inafune, the creator of Mega Man and the development lead behind next year’s Mighty No. 9, is on a mighty roll. After raking in a ridiculous pile of money with one of the most successful Kickstarter campaigns ever, Inafune and his design teams at Comcept and Inti Creates have released a steady flow of Mighty No. 9 details. Now, they’ve released another gameplay video, with Inafune himself holding the controller.

It’s a very brief look at the game, but the developer closes out the clip with a hearty shout of “I’m extremely satisfied!” How can you not love Inafune’s energy?

In other Mighty No. 9 news, Contradiction Films’ Tim Carter recently sat down with EP Daily and revealed that his company has been contracted to produce a live-action adaptation of the game.

“We are at the very beginning stages of creative development on a digital series for Might No. 9. We are building the story right now,” Carter said. “I was a little apprehensive about it at first until I got his notes, and thought ‘Dude, you should be working at Pixar!’ It’s so good. We’re really, really excited about it.”

It’s currently unknown how the Mighty No. 9 adaptation will be released, but Contradiction Films is best known as the producers behind 2011’s excellent Mortal Kombat: Legacy webseries. So perhaps Mighty No. 9 will receive similar treatment.

Development on Keiji Inafune’s Mighty No. 9 is humming right along inside the walls of Comcept and Inti Creates.

The game is still clearly in the early going, but be sure to check out the screenshots after the break and savor that sweet Mega Man-like flavor.
